Seen in a Dolby Cinema with dual-projector 3D HFR (high frame rate)

Avatar 2 picks up the story several years after the first movie, and if you haven't re-watched the original since it came out over a decade ago, you might feel a little lost at first. However, with a run time of over 3 hours, there is plenty of opportunity to catch up.

While all the scenes are extremely detailed, and visually captivating in 3D, I felt the story wasn't as good as the first one. I was also left with questions about plot elements that were left un-answered. I'm sure this is because they (hopefully) will be dealt with in a subsequent film, but it left me feeling a little unsatisfied.

Should you see this movie in 3D: Yes!
Should you see this movie in the theater: Yes!

Seek out the biggest, loudest, 3D presentation you can, and enjoy the wonders of Pandora. Just don't get the big soda pop.

Just like the first movie from 2009, this is a movie that basically requires viewing in 3D and in the biggest screen with the best sound possible. Watching this on your phone is going to leave wondering what the fuss is all about.

The story has elements from many other movies so there’s not much that’s new here. Just as Avatar had elements of Dances with Wolves, The Way of Water imagines what the journey was like after John Dunbar and Stands with a Fist rounded the corner of the mountain. Cameron even steals elements from one of his own movies, which makes for quite a referential moment.

This story is not as compelling as the original, and it seems like it was intended to be an installment of a larger story (which it is). It leaves things unresolved and there are plenty of plot threads to pull on in later movies. I didn’t enjoy it as much as the first movie, but what was fascinating in the first is now expected, so it was going to be hard to match or exceed that without things going over the top.

The special effects are too-notch. I never saw anything that looked fake, even though it was nearly all computer-generated. Cameron has once again proven his mastery of implementing 3D, and other movies will likely continue to try (and fail) to match it.

This is a movie you need to see on the big screen, with big sound, and in 3D!

Dialogue a bit stale. Story line a repeat. Does not grip you. The scenery is fantastic. Special effects over the top. I can also say if you wait to see it on streaming you will miss the impact of the effects and you may want to pass this altogether.

I saw it because I saw Avatar 1 and all this stuff was new. Disappointing.
